Directed by Joachim Trier | Norway | 2021 | 2h 8m | Norwegian w/ English subtitles | Starring Renate Reinsve, Anders Danielsen Lie, Herbert Nordrum, Maria Grazia Di Meo

A woman on the verge of her thirties navigates the troubled waters of her love life while struggling to decide what to do with her life.

Nominated for Best International Feature and Best Original Screenplay at this year’s Oscars.

Reviews

‘An emotional whirlwind, masterfully articulated. Nobody does modern agony and ecstasy better than Trier.’
★★★★★
Hannah Strong, Little White Lies

‘Trier has taken on one of the most difficult genres imaginable, the romantic drama, and combined it with another very tricky style – the coming-of-ager – to craft something gloriously sweet and beguiling.’
★★★★★
Robbie Collins, The Telegraph

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
